What people say about this course
I highly recommend this course for those looking to deeply explore themselves as facilitators in the Work. The materials Ernest provides are invaluable, the class content is engaging and interactive, and the partnering homework is wonderfully structured for optimal growth and self discovery as a facilitator. This course is a gem.
Abby McDowell, USA
This course with Ernest showed me a new dimension of how to facilitate with The Work in a more playfull, authentic and relaxed way. He shares his experience openly and gives a lot of references for the facilitation, that are easy to handle. I would recommend everybody the course who wants to have a fresh approach to the facilitation and who is looking to give their clients more value.
Anke Fieles-Kahl, Germany
I recommend this course to everyone who wants to work with clients and is looking for their own way to do it. This course really answers my exact questions. Very personal!
Irina Petersone, Latvia
Honestly, as an experienced facilitator I was doubting whether this course could bring me more than I already 'knew', but I am pleasantly surprised! Ernest and this course have given me new insights in my skills and challenges. They provided me with some very good tools. And mostly, they allowed me to trust myself and my facilitation skills much more, and to feel free to use them. I definitely recommend this course to anyone!
Marijke Tops, The Netherlands
This course palpably deepened my level of trust in myself, the client, and in The Work. Through these 5 weeks of exploring ways I've held myself back in facilitation, I've noticed a new level of freedom to show up fully. Even a long-time client seemed to notice a difference, offering "that was the best session ever!" I really recommend this course with Ernest for being a facilitator (vs. doing facilitation).
Jimmy Lundeen, Brazil
I loved that course! Ernest is very generous in his sharings, and I've had a wonderful playground to try new ways of facilitating.
Cendrine Pasquier, France
Ernest's Facilitator Training Course gave me extra tools for my facilitator's toolbox and great insights about how to facilitate which has helped me enormously. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to sharpen their facilitator skills.

Ernest expands the experience of The Work and brings an enriched understanding of the process which allows for exploration and insights that have become invaluable to me. I learned nuances in the roles of facilitator and clients that deepens the practice for me. I came away from his course with a renewed excitement for The Work.
Keitheley Wilkinson, California USA
Going Deeper has provided a safe environment in which I have found myself able to push at the boundaries of my comfort zones through class discussion, partner work, and guided meditations.
Abby McDowell, Connecticut USA
Very effective to work with others at the same skill levels to dive deeper in The Work, and see so many different styles of delivering it. I also loved experiencing it back to me and not just practicing it as the deliverer.
Wende Wylie, California USA
It felt like stepping onto an island full of new treasures of the work.
Hedda Seemann, Germany
I didn't expect "Going Deeper" to be so powerful. Deep is precisely the right adjective to describe the profound coverage of the course. The chance to share and work with someone means each week I get past a vulnerability. It makes the group more intimate and closer. I feel less fearful of speaking about the thoughts that arise and open to sharing something of myself which is profound. It really feels like a deeper experience of being human is taking place.
Wayne Baron, United Kingdom
This was an extremely effective course. I loved Ernest's personal style, simultaneously encouraging and challenging, assisting each of us individually and as a group to rise above the beliefs we are carrying that are holding us back. Before the course was over, I was already circling back to Ernest's schedule, trying to figure out when I can take his next course. It was indeed a successful invitation to go deeper.
Brenda Dixon, Maryland USA
In my experience, Ernest has an authentic, advanced integration of Inquiry that inspires and clarifies. I appreciate his occasional off beat humor and the warmth and presence of how he holds a group. I was dubious about learning with someone other than Byron Katie, but I was happily surprised and will be back for more.
Alara Tiernan, California USA
Ernest is an extraordinarily skilled facilitator. He can put his finger precisely on the core issue underlying your suffering and use this insight to sensitively craft a pathway through the blockage. The power of "The Work" in his hands is amazing to behold.
Lynn Wilkinson, Connecticut USA
This is one of the best classes about The Work of Byron Katie I have ever done. I would take it one more time without hesitation.
Katerina Korolkova, Florida USA
I felt so safe going Deep at the course with Ernest. His experience and loving kindness opened my mind and his deep respect for what happens during the course gives us such an opportunity to learn to accept what is within ourselves and our clients. To practice with other open-minded participants was also a great gift.
Ragna Rosengren, Sweden
Ernest’s courses have been the most thought-provoking, free-wheeling, and unconventional that I have taken in The Work. He is simultaneously challenging and tender with us, which has propelled me to deeper personal insights and to better relationships with my husband and son. The various techniques he has shared have given me new tools to deepen my inquiry. His honesty and openness have also been thought-provoking for me, as I am habitually more guarded. I also very much appreciate his playfulness in class. I am so glad I have had the continuing opportunity to learn from Ernest.
Brenda Dixon, Maryland USA
A very powerful course that made us go deeper in the inquiry. Ernest is very kind and have so much years of experiences that we can ask him any questions, he will have the answers.
Laurent Dommee, France
I can highly recommend Ernest`s course "Going deeper with The Work", which offers so many valuable insights from years of practice. And it is a great encouragement to do The Work with more flexibility and with more emphasis on its essence as an experience - experiencing situations, stressful beliefs, and facilitating as a connected journey for client (and facilitator) in every step.
Michael Kilpper, Germany
Going Deeper with Ernest is at first a gentle scratching of the surface, however, through what seems like simple exercises, pretty soon I found myself in deep waters. Ernest's style is welcoming and inviting, he holds steady the tension between structured inquiry and the freedom to take sharp turns when the situation calls for it. I simply love journeying with Ernest down the rabbit holes of the present moment. It is such an inspiration!
Inbar Sarig, California USA
Ernest has a wonderful way of communicating and interacting with others when doing The Work. He is present, straightforward, and shares his experience without ever being overly directive. I very much appreciate his presence, and will continue to take & recommend any classes he offers!
Abby McDowell, Connecticut USA
I love your creativity, the way you see inquiry as a space more than some rigid method to be strictly followed.
Genevieve Shibolet, Israel
A course that I can really recommend. A good mix between theory, discussion and practice. It is noticeable that Ernest has a long experience of working with The work. He is educational, he teaches and guides us with warmth and with a big heart.
Hans Åkersten, Sweden
In his trademark style of clear, concise and fuss-free communication, Ernest structures and facilitates the course very well. In a unique blend of stripping things down to the bare essentials and simultaneously holding the space for honest vulnerability, the course truly offers clarity in a noisy world, and with a big heart.
Teresia Björnberg, Switzerland
Ernest is a great facilitator for learning and applying the teachings of Byron Katie's Loving What Is teachings.
His teaching method is relaxed yet professional and he has a deep understanding and systemised method of teaching the necessary information for us to apply it to our own life.
I have read several of Byron Katie's books however Ernest's deep understanding of Byron's teachings helped me apply her teachings in a more effective way than I had achieved on my own.
Without hesitation I recommend this course. Ernest is the perfect man for this job.
Anton Hooton, Australia
Ernest has a solid experience with the Work. I felt secure with him during the group's sessions. He is open-minded, attentive and very pedagogical. I liked the fact that all questions were welcome. It was precious to hear our questions, doubts and inquiries be enlightened by Ernest's knowledge and experience.
I have already advised two friends to participate in the next class. They are already registered. Thank you Ernest for giving easy, convenient and efficient access to The Work.
Laurent Novo, France
Ernest knows his stuff! And he presents the material in a comprehensive way that is very illuminating. His teaching style is excellent and his emphasis on the body sensations/emotions is key. I highly recommend Ernest as a teacher and facilitator!
Jenny Turco, Massachusetts USA
Ernest’s ability to listen deeply with patience and kindness gave me the confidence and courage to “Do the Work”.
Scott Lindsey, Colorado USA
The class sessions were really good. It felt okay to ask pretty much any questions we could think of and we did! I liked how straightforward you are Ernest and the stories you share from your own life are helpful.
Kelly Walker, New Zealand
Ernest has a natural way of sharing his knowledge by interweaving theory with questions and experiences that arose during the class sessions. There was this nice balance between theory and practice and I liked the interaction with the other participants.
I found it also very convenient that I could join from my home, not needing to travel anywhere.
Astrid van Drie, The Netherlands
This course was a fantastic introduction to how to do The Work! Ernest is passionate, knowledgeable, and skilled at communicating and teaching the subtleties of the art of Inquiry.
Derek Cummings, Oregon USA
Thank you for both planning such a delicate course as well as hosting it! During the course I've made several breakthroughs in my life (being able to taking the decision about quitting nicotine after +20 years of heavy smoking, improved relationship to my family, spouse, friends, 'complete strangers' and, not to forget, the relationship with myself). I am now connected with other participants that I do inquiry with on almost a daily basis.
Christian Sams, Denmark
Ernest’s approach to The Work of Byron Katie is creative, intuitive, and confrontational in a way I find very useful and conducive to inner growth. I have learned a lot from “going deeper still” and can recommend it to anyone willing and eager to challenge their limits and open their minds further.
